Footnotes

  • Indian metalwork known as 'Bidri-Ware' had been exhibited in the Vienna Exhibition in 1873 and this inspired a series of glass designs made by Lobmeyr. Moritz Knab was a graduate of the Viennese Industrial School and was employed by Lobmeyr as a designer from 1882-86. For other 'iron-green' vases with Bidri-Ware designs see Glass Gallery Michael Kovacek, Glass of 5 Centuries (1990), pp. 278-9, figs. 239-240. See also Robert Schmidt, 100 Jahre Osterreichische Glaskunst (1925), p. 60.
